Seasonal Flu Vaccine Information

Influenza, or flu, is a viral respiratory illness that is spread person to person via respiratory droplets when a person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Symptoms of the flu often come on suddenly and can include, fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, headache, and fatigue. In 2019, it’s estimated that between 39‒56 million individuals in the United States had the flu and 410,000‒740,000 people were hospitalized for their illness.

This year, it’s important to get vaccinated for the flu to help reduce respiratory illness and preserve limited health care resources that may be in short supply due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is the City of Albuquerque Doing to Promote Vaccination?

In order to best serve our community, the City of Albuquerque is encouraging all of its employees to get vaccinated for the flu at our yearly employee vaccination events. We are also partnering with other State and local agencies to spread the word and encourage all residents to get vaccinated.

Routine Vaccinations

Routine vaccinations, typically provided in childhood, prevent a number of serious diseases, including: measles, mumps, chicken pox, rubella, and more. Getting kids vaccinated for these diseases keeps our community healthy. Many of these vaccinations are also required in order for children to attend school.
